Mulholland Dr.

275
Mulholland Dr. review

"My only problem with Mullholland Dr. is that it just isn't as special anymore as it used to be."

Minuscule

274
Minuscule review

"It's cute, charming, funny and perfect for a warm summer evening. Don't expect anything deep or challenging, just let the film's charm sweep you away."

Helldriver

273
Helldriver review

"Nishimura adepts can rejoice, Helldriver is up there with the best, sporting roughly two hours of madness, hilariously out-of-place social criticism and tons and tons of liters of blood."

Until the Lights Come Back

272
Until the Lights Come Back review

"Somehow Until the Lights Come Back never found its way into the mainstream, even though it's a pretty accessible film. It's sweet, upbeat, feel good, a tad long maybe but never slow or boring."

The Bow

271
The Bow review

"The Bow is a pretty logical evolution in Ki-duk's career. It includes many of the themes and stylistic choices from his older films while still lacking the slick execution of his newer ones."

The Blair Witch Project

270
The Blair Witch Project review

"The past 7 to 8 years the horror scene has been swamped with found footage films."

The City of Lost Children

269
The City of Lost Children review

"If you're a fan of Delicatessen and you haven't seen The City of Lost Children it's really a no-brainer."

Shamo

268
Shamo review

"Visually beautiful, strong use of sound and an unconventionally ruthless story. Cheang is a real talent and proves himself again after fabulous films like New Blood and Dog Bite Dog."

My Blueberry Nights

267
My Blueberry Nights review

"This film is 200% Kar Wai and comes unmistakably from his hands, annoying actors were turned into lovable characters and his film proved once again that movies are an audiovisual experience"

Micmacs

266
Micmacs review

"Think Amélie but with a darker, more adventurous and boyish edge. It's a good 100 minutes of fun in a recognizable but still outlandish version of Paris, hosted by a gang of endearing weirdos."

Breathe In, Breathe Out

265
Breathe In, Breathe Out review

"If you think it all sounds rather dull than that's perfectly understandable. The thing is, it really isn't. Breathe In, Breathe Out is a beautiful, pure, subtle and heart-warming drama."

Beast

264
Beast review

"Beast is a very worthy addition to the oeuvre of Boe."

Container

263
Container review

"It's impossible to univocally recommend a film like this, but fans of experimental, dark and uncompromising cinema should really check this one out (if you haven't already)."

In The Mood For Love

262
In The Mood For Love review

"Doyle and Umebayashi do a great job, Leung and Cheung are stellar, but they cannot hide the fact that Kar Wai grew even more skilled after completing this film."

Invisible Waves

261
Invisible Waves review

"Compared to RRNNM just about everything is more polished. The visuals look tastier, the soundtrack is even more profoundly present and the acting is just about perfect."

Glory to the Filmmaker

260
Glory to the Filmmaker review

"Glory to the Filmmaker is one big happy mess of filmmaking, referencing many other directors, resembling many more, but defying them all by making something totally unique and totally Kitano."

Tokyo Fist

259
Tokyo Fist review

"Tokyo Fist is somewhat of a forgotten Tsukamoto film, which is weird considering its many qualities."

Fearless

258
Fearless review

"If you're looking for a stellar martial arts flick though, Fearless is a safe bet."

Fires on the Plain

257
Fires on the Plain review

"This is not a very happy film, nor is it very subtle."

Garden of Words

256
Garden of Words review

"Garden of Words is everything you'd expect from a Shinkai film."

Norwegian Wood

255
Norwegian Wood review

"It's beautifully shot, wonderfully scored and aptly acted. It scores well in just about every department, showcasing the progress Tran has made as a director."

Outrage

254
Outrage review

"The first hour or so provides a solid setup, introducing all characters and factions related to the Yakuza gang, while the final 30 minutes are the icing on the cake."

Ninja Kids!!!

253
Ninja Kids!!! review

"Ninja Kids!!! is the perfect example of demented Japanese kids entertainment that's weird enough to appeal to adults, at least those with some memories of their lost childhood."

Taipei Exchanges

252
Taipei Exchanges review

"A small, delicate and subtle little film that feels fresher than its peers and excels in just about every way possible."

Spring Subway

251
Spring Subway review

"Zhang does a magnificent job at both romantic and dramatic angles and delivers a beautifully shot and scored film, revolving around a lovable couple."
